I don’t know about you but when it comes to beauty and hair products I really don’t like buying full sized unless I know it will work for me. I don’t know when I became this person, but I think it’s for the better. I think about how often I would buy something, use it a few times, and realize it’s not for me. I’m not the kind of person that will return a used beauty product, it just seems weird to me so I decided sample sized is the way to go because there is less waste.
I started buying sample sizes this year because I realized I prefer to actually test something before jumping in - especially if it’s on the more expensive side. I recently ordered a few sample sizes from Sephora of items I wanted to try and some clean beauty swaps that I’ve been meaning to make.
April is almost over meaning Mothers Day is fast approaching. If you're like me you're always looking for something your mom will actually use. But, when I buy my mom practical things I like to make sure I can also find her something that is fun too. For Christmas most of her gifts were practical, so I decided to look for something she would like but I know she wouldn't spend her own money on.
Plus, I also like to look for what I would want too - my husband is very good at purchasing gifts off my list. So I'm sharing below just a few ideas plus my most recent Ulta purchase!

It's that time of year again when Ulta does their 21 days of beauty sale. I've been more picky with what I am buying but definitely shopping a few days. But before you shop, sign up for Rakuten and you can get 3% cash back on your purchase at Ulta.

Here are some of my picks from the sale. I'm also interested this year because on Sept 12th (happy birthday to me!) they are doing a surprise beauty steal that will be 50% off.
Like I said, I'm trying to be more selective about what I am purchasing so I didn't share a huge list because I want to make sure I am not spending more than necessary. You can check out all 21 days here.
Here are a few items I did just refill on as well. These are ones I use daily!
The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser
Brightening Treatment Drops Triple Vitamin C Serum
Protect + Glow Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Rose Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm
If you've been on Instagram at all you'll notice influencers posting their LTKit links. These are affiliate links that these creators can earn a *very* small commission off of at no extra cost to the shopper. They have in app exclusives and Like to Know it Day is one where they partner with specific retailers to give you a discount while shopping from the app. You can shop outside the app but using a link from a blogger is an easy way to support someone that you follow while buying something you want!
LTKit Day has some great brands participating, I'll list all of them below but wanted to share some of my top faves from brands that I already shop. I wouldn't push a product on you that I haven't tried or like so all of these items linked are things I already use or am planning on purchashing!
Ulta here for the win with their 21 Days of Beauty. Hopefully you're practicing your social distancing so what better way than to shop online for all the deals! I have linked my favorite below and started with today's deals for you.

Hey guys, it’s been a bit since I’ve blogged and wanted to stop and chat about some of my favorite lip balms. I love a bold lip and bright colors but sometimes I want the color without having to actually wear a lipstick or paint. If you haven’t tried a lip balm that changes with your Ph you’re missing out!
There are a few different lip balms that I’ve been using that are perfect for adding some color to your lips without the hassle of lipstick. You literally apply and your lips transform, and no two lips will look the same because the formula adapts to your pH.
Hey guys! It's been a hot minute since I've been on here and posted. We started school about a month ago so I've been so wrapped up in making sure everything is good for that I haven't had time to get on here. Trying to manage my time better so I can keep up with you all!
If you didn't know, my birthday is in September so obviously it's one of my favorite months! Naturally, Ulta's 21 days of beauty falls around the same time so I decided to start celebrating my birthday early by shopping...of course. If you've never shopped it before it's basically different deals each day with up to 50% off! I generally stock up on items during sales like this so I don't have a freak out when I run out! Here's a quick roundup of my favorites from the sale!
